Smugglin' SamMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
Doc Jim and the police were investigating a drug smuggler who was staying at a local hotel. Unfortunately, when they arrived, the suspect, Smugglin' Sam, had already left. Luckily for them, he had left a list of the places where he was staying.
"According to his list," began the Captain, "he will be in Paris for two weeks, then Naples, then Athens, London, Palestine, and finally Moscow. He sure knows how to disguise himself. His girlfriend said he just recently bought a ten-gallon hat! Well, tonight I'll have my men fly out to France to get him. We'll search every hotel there, but we'll find him."
"Unfortunately," said Doc, "Your men will be flying in the wrong direction to catch ol' Sam."
Where was Sam hiding?
HintYou can't fly into Palestine.
Doc knew that, because Sam wrote Palestine instead of Israel, that he wasn't planning a transatlantic flight - but a continental one: Paris, Naples, Athens, London, Palestine, and Moscow are all cities in Texas.
